No moron, do I have to remind you? You stuck your nose in a discussion between blohart and myself. That makes blohart part of the topic.
Again, logic fail on your part. Also a lack of seeing how you failed from the start.
Uhm do I have to remind you this abiogenesis crap started between you and I last night! So I was just continuing where I left off.

BTW Sub. I asked you a mathematical question coupled with common sense three weeks ago. You avoided it and blew it off. Answer it and I will get off your @ss. If you want the question again just ask.
After all, all the silly questions you asked me about a car going 80km in 11 minutes or what ever they were I always answered you.
Why do you keep dodging this for?

All I can say is what a moron.
Seriously, do you practice being this stupid every day?
I have noticed it is not just with me. You are an idiot with almost everyone that you interact with here.
That is funny. Chimney and I seem to get along. Poly and I seem to get along. MikeF and I seem to get along but as he said that does not mean he won't give me a hard time when needed. There are several others so I don't see your point.

I don't have any evidence that I will wake up tomorrow. Just because I woke up today and the days prior is not evidence that I will wake up tomorrow. At most it is a probability. I could die in my sleep from a heart attack, a stroke, an aneurysm, someone could break into my house and shoot me while I slept, etc etc. As I said at best there is probability that I will wake up and that is all. Just because I have been waking up is not evidence that I will tomorrow.
You have a lot to learn about the nature of evidence.

Your alternate probabilities does not remove the fact that you and countless other similar people waking up in the morning is very good evidence that you will wake up in the morning too.

Of course your inability to understand evidence is one of the factors that started this little discussion.

Yes, but it was extremely clear that you had lost last night.

This was a discussion between bohart and I. Of course if you wanted to continue being wrong feel free.

I didn't avoid it. If I remember correctly, and I do, you had a chore to do first. You avoided that. So it was you that was running away all of this time.

Wasn't that the night of your epic failure?

Oh my, it is almost 12:30.

Thanks for the idiocy. It is always nice to have a fool to look down upon.

Maybe we can continue tomorrow.

Chimney and you get along? I doubt that.

Poly is nice even to Urban Cowboy. He has the patience of the mythical Job.

I don't like dishonest people. As long as you are honest we get along fine together. It is when you start to lie that we have problems.

So by your thoughts. If you live to be 20 that is evidence you will live to be 30 and that is evidence you will live to be 40 and so on and so on. All probability. Life can end at any moment. That lil Sub is a fact. Life is a gift not a guarantee. You think today is evidence you will be here tomorrow you are sadly mistaken. Trust me it can be taken away at any moment from disease. accident, heart attack, stroke, the hand of another etc etc. it is all probability.

What an idiot!! Good effin grief Sub.
You say "Did I say that you fool?" The answer would be hellll yes you did with this comment "Wrong, abiogenesis has been observed in the fossil record."
Sub your stupidity just keeps getting worse and worse. This is the only comment you made that I felt was even worthy a reply and it really isn't worthy a reply. What a tard. LOL

Ok fun over, there are at least 27 valid and feasible scientific theories that work mathematically. And any number of theories that have not been shown to be mathematically valid (could be because we don’t have the math or because they are irrelevant). They all have one thing in common though, no god was required.
Personally I favour the theory of Dr Laura Mersini-Houghton whose premise not only explains how it could have happened, it also explains the three previously unexplainable phenomena in the universe that have baffled cosmologists for years
And you, I know believe with all you belief but no maths, no observation, no logic and no facts and no falsifiability , in the guess postulated by the cosmic ignorance of bronze age man that your goddidit by magic out of void.
Still dreaming.

Nope, that is human imagination, not reality, nothing is actually lost.
I have tried to explain this concept to you before using the example of whales swimming across the date line and it seems that attempt could not get past your ignorance based filtering system
So here is a little experiment, set your watch to some arbitrary and obvious time, say 5:37 and some arbitrary date, say 1st November 2013. Now cross the date line and look at your watch. You will notice that the date has not changes, just your imagination of the date has changed.
That watch is a mechanical or electronic device and not subject to the vagaries of imagination and guess what, it does not imagine…
So science according to you is not real.

You total f-ing idiot. How can I be dodging when you did not follow through with what you were told you had to do to get the answer you desired?

We were switching back and forth, I had answered your previous question, you never earned the answer you sought. You are the one who is dodging.

It is amazing how you can forget the pertinent facts when you are the one that is in the wrong.

Poor, poor little moron. Now you have gone all Black Knight on me.

How are you going to kick anyone's ass when your legs have been cut off.

Poor little masochist. You come here just to get yourself beat every day, whether it is me, MikeF, poly, Chimney1, or the love of your life Dan of Smallville. It seems that you are some strange sort of homosexual stalker.

So let's see. When you are shown to be massively wrong, let's try to change the argument.

Yes, life can end at any moment, tard, I never denied that. But living to the age of 60 is very good evidence that you will live to the age of 60 years plus one day. You seem to think that evidence has to be an irrefutable fact. It isn't. That is why a court case, or a scientific theory, relies upon much more than a single piece of evidence.

The fact that you have gotten up for 60 years every morning is very strong evidence that you will wake up, unfortunately, today. It could be shown to be wrong by a lucky "miracle" from God. Personally I don't believe in miracles and you will probably show me to be correct some time today.
